“Nine” LA Premiere

When I found out that some of the Best Dressed women in Hollywood would be appearing in a film together, I was sure we’d be drooling over their red carpet looks.

Unfortunately I haven’t been.

Penelope Cruz looked amazing at the London premiere, but this time she opted for a simple black L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 halter dress, with tights and black platform heels.

We know she can do much better than this.

Nicole Kidman walked the red carpet wearing a baby pink L’Wren Scott fitted dress.

The silhouette is very much what we’re used to seeing from Kidman and Scott’s designs, but on this occasion she added a lace capelet to try to make the look more interesting.

Kidman reverted back to kitten heels after teasing us with real heels at the London premiere.

Fergie was the sex kitten of the night wearing a overtly sexy Camilla and Marc “Caraletta” mini dress with t-bar heels.

Where is Marion Cotillard when you need some glamour?

This event was a big fail for me.

“Nine” London Premiere

This is the Penelope Cruz I love.

Elegant, unstated, effortless and simply gorgeous.

She was by far my Best Dressed at this premiere looking angelic wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 vintage chambray georgette beaded gown.

For such a big occasion there may have been a temptation to over do the bling, but her Chopard diamonds complemented the sparkling details on her gown.

She completed her look with a Ralph Lauren lizard flower clutch.

Kate Hudson wore a stunning white Atelier Versace Fall 2009 strapless gown, with a beaded bodice and sculptural skirt, paired with silver heels.

This stunning creation should’ve been enough to be my best dressed, but I didn’t like her hair.

The hair is typical Kate Hudson.  It’s the same hair we see in candids out with her kids or her boyfriend A Rod.

I would have expected more in that department since she was wearing such an amazing gown.

Shout if you think it’s BDOTW worthy.

I expected Nicole Kidman to blow me away, but she didn’t.

I was so disappointed with her look and I really wish she opted for a stunning gown instead of this white Azzedine Alaia Spring 2010 ensemble.

Hopefully she will knock it out of the park for the following premiere’s.

Film Director Rebecca Miller arrived wearing the same Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 dress she wore to the “The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee” New York Screening.

Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes arrived with her bandmates Jamie Morrison and Dan Smith.

She left them in the shade wearing a David Koma Fall 2009 black dress with those distinctive tube details on the skirt.

I love that cropped red satin jacket she wore with her look.

Jasmine Guinness’ red velvet shawl and burgundy pumps through me off loving her Christian Dior Resort 2010 black gown with leopard print theme.

I like the red lips though.

Dame Judi Dench chose an understated lime green Betty Jackson full-length dress, which she paired with gold accessories.

Vivienne Westwood’s muse Tolula Adeyemi arrived wearing a sexy baby blue bustier gown, whilst carrying a Louis Vuitton clutch.

Who Wore Alexander McQueen Better? Penelope Cruz or Dita von Teese

At the close of the New York Film Festival Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar and Spanish actress Penelope Cruz posed for the media for present ‘Los Abrazos Rotos’ (‘Broken Embraces’).

Penelope wore a Alexander McQueen houndstooth pencil dress with satin black pumps and accessorized with sunglasses which helped show off her cleavage.

Dita von Teese wore the same dress this weekend when she signed copies of her new book “Dita Striptease” at Waterstone’s in Piccadilly, London.

She star wore her cowl-neck dress with t-bar Louboutin’s and accessorized with a black brooch shaped like a hand.

This McQueen dress has a modern take on this classic forties style, which is classic Dita.

The dress looks like it was made for Dita so she wins for me.

This dress is available to purchase from Saks.com and Net-A-Porter.

Runway To Moet & Chandon Benefit Auction – Monica Cruz In Louis Vuitton

Monica Cruz attended a benefit auction hosted by Catherine Deneuve and Moet & Chandon’s in Madrid last night.

The petite younger sister of Penelope Cruz walked the red carpet wearing a Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 dress with poufy sleeves and a bell shaped skirt.

As much as I like this dress, I’m not particularly wowed when I see it on Monica.

Firstly she should have worn her hair back. At present her hair is competing with her voluminous shoulders.

Also I really wish she had added a touch of colour to her look.

She opted out of wearing both the pink sash and the pink pom pom which appears on the runway in the right shoulder.

Could’ve been a great look, but falls a little flat for me.

Which Was Your Favourite Penelope Cruz “Los Abrazos Rotos” Promotional Tour Look?

Leona Lewis take note. It’s better to mix things up, than stick to the same look/designer.

Penelope Cruz has had an impressive 10 months promoting “Los Abrazos Rotos” wearing looks from L’Wren Scott, Herve Leroux and Calvin Klein.

It’s impossible for me to pick one favourite so my picks are the L’Wren Scott black gown, the Marchesa gown and Bottega Veneta red suit.

Can you narrow your favourite down to one?

Social Events Of The Week

“Broken Embraces” New York Screening

On Penelope Cruz’ last red carpet outing she was head-to-toe in black.

This time she lightens up wearing an ivory Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009 look consisting of a full-length coat and 3/4 length sleeved velvet dress.

The colour is gorgeous against her olive skin and I love her glossy tumbling wavy locks.

I love it when Pen’s on top form, and this is one of those enjoyable occasions.

Printemps Christmas Window Display Launch, France

Natalia Vodianova can do pretty dresses, we all know that.

Here she proves she can look stunning wearing a navy blue Givenchy Fall 2009 suit.

The cut is exquisite and I love that she didn’t over accessorize this look.

‘Nine’ Screening, New York

I like Fergie’s Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2009 ensemble, and I don’t even mind the tights.

I just wish she’d loosen up that severe hairstyle, as it throws me off loving the look.

The Whaleman Foundation Benefit, LA

Sporting new bangs Hayden Panettiere looked stunning wearing an eggshell Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress with an asymmetrical twisted neckline and a twisted detail on the skirt.

This colour shows off her year-round California tan.

I loved her gold trimmed accessories which included a Bally Agrippa-E clutch and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute suede sandals, which complimented her gold cuff.

“Star Trek” DVD/Blu-Ray Release Party, LA

After not being in love with Zoe Saldana last red carpet looks, she totally redeems herself wearing a Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2010 black and nude dress.

I’m loving those subtle animal print heels and that sheer draping neckline.

“Late Show With David Letterman”, New York

Nicole Kidman has been getting first dibs on all the L’Wren Scott Spring 2010 pieces, but Penelope got to pick this stunning black dress.

It’s simple, chic, shows of her stunning figure, plus I love the leather detailing on the shoulders.

I’m not sure why, but I’m currently obsessed with her glossy hair.

The Hollywood Reporter Honors Eva Longoria Parker With Philanthropist Of The Year Award, LA

Kate Beckinsale wears her second Andrew GN look this week.

Many of you said you find her red carpet style stale, boring, predictable and samey, but there’s not mermaid hem on this black long sleeved Andrew GN Spring 2010 dress.

Don’t you just love that silver beaded embellishment at waist which make the dress more interesting?

Grey YSL Tribute suede pumps and a black clutch complete the look.

I’m getting seriously worried that the current trend to apply a lot of white eyeshadow is catching on.

It’s very subtle on Eva Longoria, unlike Taraji P. Henson.

Eva was honoured at this event, walked the red carpet wearing a sexy red asymmetrical ruched Badgley Mischka Fall 2009 dress.

Unfortunately the hair and make-up puts me off loving this look.

Leona Lewis’ Album Celebration, LA

Oh Ciara. From the long shot and especially in the close up, all I can focus on are your goodies when I should be loving those delightful ruffled shoulders.

Sheer dress + no bra + flash blubs = exposure.

Celebrity red carpet dressing 101.

As much as I’m loving this new improved attitude from Leona Lewis, I’m not loving her obsession with those corseted belts.

It has worked on a few pieces, but on a Herve Leger bandage dress is just makes no sense at all.

Just don’t get me started on the ankle boots.

“The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee” New York Screening

I see trouble ahead for the rumoured Victoria Beckham Collection Spring 2010 campaign girl.

In an interview with Allure magazine, Victoria Beckham said “Don’t have all your legs out and all your boobs out. Cover something up”.

Ooops Blake obvisoulsy doesn’t live by that rule, and why should she when she looks this fabulous.

The Gossip Girl actress looked stunning wearing a beautiful bow-fronted Marchesa Spring 2010 white embroidered blazer with black shorts.

J’Adore.  She can’t do wrong for me at the moment.

Sophia Bush was covered up wearing a Helmut Lang powder print dress, but that didn’t stop her looking any less fabulous.

I’m glad to see Sophia is not sticking to the obvious labels and trying something new for a refreshing change, as it helps her stand out from all the Hollywood starlet Herve Leger wearing clones.

Sophia and I obviously have the same taste, as I added this dress to my favourites this week.

Julianne Moore’s Viktor & Rolf Spring 2010 tuxedo jacket-like draped dress is soften without the sleeves.

I really like the modification, but if she was going to wear tights that thick she might as well have stuck with the original runway version.

Writer/director Rebecca Miller wasn’t about to be outdone by these actresses.

She also glammed for this screening by donning a very chic tailored Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2009 keyhole black dress with a red floral design, a high collar and gathered sleeves.

European actresses Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz seemed to be inseparable, as I couldn’t find a picture of them apart.

Cruz wore head-to-toe black, whereas Marion stood out by wearing a taupe dress with embellished details.

I much preferred Robin Wright Penn as a blonde.

I understand she wants to ‘wash that man right outta her hair’, but brunette was not the way forward for her.

What’s with all the drastic colour changes lately?  First McPhee, now Robin.

Also the Herve Leger dress isn’t really doing anything good for her.

Social Events Of The Weekend

“After Life” Screening, LA

Christina Ricci never plays it safe and we love her for that.

The actress struck a fierce pose wearing a Marios Schwab black high-neck dress with crystal detail on the front.

Towering YSL Trib Two’s to completed the look.

This is the 3rd Marios Schwab look we’ve seen recently.

Leighton Meester and Cheryl Cole have also fallen in love with Schwab’s cutting edge designs.

“Dare” LA Premiere

Emmy Rossum is definitely on a roll.

The beautiful actress shimmered wearing a Donna Karan sequin jersey dress which she paired with Christian Louboutin t-bar heels whilst her tousled lock tumbled down her shoulders.

March of Dimes 4th Annual Celebration of Babies, LA

Halle Berry was every bit the yummy mummy flaunting her fabulous curves in this Yigal Azrouel long sleeved navy dress with a leather detail on the waist.

Grey suede shoes complete this stunning look.

Could her teeth be more white?

Nicole Richie motto is, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”.

She’s been rocking the maxi dress look for a while now, and judging by this chocolate and ivory leaf print maxi dress she has no desire to switch things up anytime soon.

Can you believe she gave birth just 2 months ago?

“Broken Embraces” Rome Photocall

Penelope Cruz has been promoting “Broken Embraces” for a while now, so I guess the novelty of dressing up has worn off.
